Being Creative Series

Imagine the sudden, unexpected death of your partner or spouse!  What would you do? Join Beth on a journey of discovery and renewal as she navigates her way through grief.  As well as examining the serious side of grief, the play takes a satirical jab at post-funeral interactions and family dynamics. Join us for some non-stop, whiz bang action! Recommended for ages 14 and up.

OUR PUrpose

The primary purpose of our club is to offer 55+ adults the opportunity to learn about and experience different aspects of live theatre including Acting, Directing, and Technical Theatre.  We also help you discover your inner creativity through classes in Improvisation, Stand-Up Comedy and Playwrighting. After getting some training and experience, you may also wish to take part in one of our productions. All classes are two hours long for six weeks and will take place in the Senior's Lounge at the Trico Centre, 11150 Bonaventure Drive SE and/or online.

FLC Acting Club members showcase their stand-up comedy talents

Several Acting Club members were given the opportunity to show off their funny bones at the Kingshead Pub Comedy Night Extravaganza organized by instructor Tarah Buchanan on April 21.  It was a packed house and everyone had a blast, especially these goofy looking people.
